Just the Facts, Please
There are times when you will need information about your piano that will identify it from all the others. When you inventory your piano for events such as moving the piano from place to place (within Arkansas or out of state), or when storing your piano in storage facilities (again, whether in Arkansas or any other state), when sending your piano away for repair, refinishing or complete restoration, or when designating your piano as part of an estate, or for simply keeping account of your piano for your own personal pride and curiosity, these are some questions you can pose to you or your estate planner:
- The piano's serial number. This is the ID number given by the manufacturer.
- The piano's brand name. This name is usually stenciled somewhere on the outside of the piano, but if the stencil is missing, look inside.
- The piano's model name and number. These names and/or numbers might not be visible or printed on the piano.
Other facts that can help fill out the personality of your piano:
- The year it was built.
- The piano's tuning, maintenance and repair history.
- The piano's family relations history.
- The piano's past ownership history.
- The piano's performance history.
It's fun to keep a journal with your piano (it's easy to keep one in the music desk). You can even save photographs of performances with comments and descriptions. One of our clients chronicled the growth of their children through a book of photographs of their quarterly recitals.
After years of use (and abuse), you you will find that your piano eventually needs repair and/or restoration. In many states, including Arkansas, it can be very difficult to find a professional company that specializes in piano restoration. Often, piano owners send their pianos to piano restoration companies outside Arkansas. Sweeney Piano offers interstate piano repair and restoration services.
